Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

Bleach is an anime that also bases on friendship just like Hitman Reborn. The lead character will eventually develop and get stronger to defend his friends just like Ichigo is getting stronger to defend his friends. That's why you'll definitly like this Anime. It's also very humorous which makes it even better.


Designs are very similar. The fillers can be boring at times, but the serious arcs are quite good, with nice battles. Very charismatic chars


If you like Bleach, then you'd probably enjoy watching Kateikyoushi Hitman Reborn! In both animes, the main character is a boy who he teams up with his friends, with their supernatural powers, to defeat their enemy in order to save the world. Throughout each series, they struggle through countless battles, and increase in strength. Both animes are also similarly drawn, especially with the fows having designs and stuff on themself. And most importantly, both Ichigo and Tsuna vow to protect their friends.


These are animes with action and tons of fights. People using special powers and using gadets. In both anime the lead slowly grows and becomes stronger. There is also a lot of comedy in both the animes.


If you liked the action in Bleach, you will surely like Reborn! They may not give you similiar plots, but both involv some amazing  uniqe superpowers, that may make you scream of excitment, that´s how I feel, I love both series, beacuse they´re special. But I think Reborn! is underestimated on the ranking.

When you start watching Reborn! you may feel like It´s pretty boring beacuse it´s introducing each charaters and there are some fillers, but if you just watch to episode 20, the real plot will start up, and then I can almost assure you, you will be stuck.

Reborn! did´nt have so many filles, like Bleach, but when it´s a filler in Reborn! the filler is actually related to the main plot, so sometimes you might not even notice it´s a filler, wich I liked in Reborn!.

I highly recommend it, and I hope you will like it as much I do!

Enyoy watching!


Both anime's are about the main character who wants to complete his goal and has its own kind of way of making it. During that journey he makes new friends who will help to reach this goal. Also both anime's include good fighting scene's.

In this anime did you like: A main character with a big sword? Fight scenes? A deep plot? Animes that you can realte to in some way?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions then no doubt this Anime is recommended for you.

Both these anime have all these aspects in them, and if you enjoyed one. You will probably like the other.


Now I've watched little Bleach recently, but I must say, there are some noticible things that correlate these two togther.

Big swords, Quick fightin, Pretty slick bad guy. If you enjoy any of these in an anime, then these are the things to watch.


Both Cloud and Ichigo have big ass swords that are about the length of their entire body. Oh, and there is action . . . with big swords. If you like weaponry, then these are the shows for you.


Big swords, action-packed fight scenes, and a group of individuals with unique powers. The main characters have gravity-defying hair and a penchant for being moody. Add in a boss-fight by someone disenchanted with his role in life, and you have similar anime.



In present day England, a war is being fought. The average citizen does not notice, but vampires are running rampant among the populace, and it's up to the Hellsing organization to contain the bloodsucker threat, using even their own weapons against them. Alucard, a vampire himself, is the best agent the organization has to offer, answering only to Integra Hellsing herself. No one knows much about this mysterious figure fighting against the occult, but things starts to change after he “recruits” a new agent to the establishment...

Bleach and Hellsing have very good animation, fights, images and history. Even if Hellsing only has 13 episodes, it's as good as Bleach.


Both of these animes have badass fighting!! also the main characters on both anime are crazy with power..on bleach the main character is kurosaki ichigo who is quite similar to alucard in the hellsing series..


So you like fighting, but not senseless in storyless series? I couldn't agree more! These two anime both have really well-develeped and interesting plot with many battles involved, so I believe that if you liked one of them, you should try another!


Hellsing and Bleach are two action packed animes that any action/shounen lover would love.

Both have badass Prot with power out of world, plenty of fights to keep u glued and lots of blood to make it feel real. Both have supernatural element that is- Vampires in Hellsing and Shinigami in Bleach, and ofc there are big bad villians who must stand in their way

Though the world may seem to be a normal place, in the midst of shadows lies the supernatural and terrifying. Beings from the shadow world known as Kokuchi have begun to invade the human world, and it’s up to certain people to defeat them; Akira Nikaido is one such person. Though his life used to be ordinary, one day, the bishounen and affectionate Shirogane asked Akira to form a pact with him; and consequently, Akira became Shirogane’s shadow partner. Together, the two hunt down stray Kokuchi – but more importantly, Akira must fend off Shirogane’s advances and try to make his classes!

in both series the main characters (ichigo- bleach Akira - MF) are suddenly dragged into a world they don't know where they are dragged to fight with horrible monsters in order to save their friends and all humans. Great fights and very funny scenes with a lot of action and great twists. All characters have a great friendship beetween them. You'll surely like one if you liked the other.


Both the series contain supernatural enomanies, that both main characters must battle to protect the world from. Both the main characters (Akira and Ichigo) meet a mysterious and strange person one day fallowing afterwards an event that transforms them, and that will change them and the world as they see forever.


In both series, main character meets a strange person, obtains superpowers, discovers that there is another, "magical" part of our world and has to fight with weird monsters.

Except for the plot similarities, in each there is also a lot of humour, so I'm sure like them both ;)


In both animes, the main character is in a life or death situation and unknowingly becomes not human. They are now stuck in keeping the world in balance. And have help from their friends who have obtained unique powers even though they're human. Both animes are action and comedy. And I recommend both! 



Michiru has an unusual ability: she can see a dark ring around a person's neck that signifies their time to die. However, she suppressed her powers once she "saw" the deaths of her parents – until now. After accidentally seeing rings around the necks of two boys in her school, it seems that Michiru's powers are back for good. The two are zombies who are working for the secret loan office known as Zombie-Loan, and they need Michiru's help to find other zombies – those with dark black rings around their necks. Though Michiru initially refuses, due to a series of events it seems she has no choice but to comply...

The zombies portrayed in Zombie Loan are very similar to Hollows in Bleach in my eyes. Lost souls turning good by being hunted seems to be a common theme in both.


Both Bleach and Zombie-Loan focus on the use of spiritual powers to eliminate supernatural enemies.  While Bleach is much more involved in the subject, Zombie-Loan also has a unique take on the higher, heavenly organization and how it effects humans back in the normal world.  If you loved Bleach you will appreciate Zombie-Loan; if you found Zombie-Loan interesting I guarentee you will like Bleach.


Both BLEACH and ZOMBIE-LOAN have similar types of humor and have fast, exciting plots... The main characters in both anime have charging, "dynamic," personalities and ideals: all with different kinds of pasts that are brought to play with the main plot~ 

If BLEACH's 200+ episodes were too much for you, ZOMBIE-LOAN's 11, yet perfectly paced, anime is for you. 


Both Bleach and Zombie-Loan utilize the theme of fighting lost souls. The "zombies" and the "hollows" are very similar, and it is the job of the protagonists to fight them. Both Ichigo and Michiru get drafted into the fight after showing signs of spiritual abilities.
